    "At the very most a link should be posted..."

    This could be a rare case where 'go take a look' is not a good thing. That generates traffic to ERV's otherwise unnoticable blog and seems to add fuel to the phenomenon.
    It may not be a productive venue; skepticism is a good thing - uncritically piling all attention on one suspect and finding it's only a sideshow would not be a great thing - but a rubbish match is not.

    I'm guessing the writer is 20-ish; if it were a guy he'd have his cap on backwards and have underwear showing. Trying to have an adult conversation with such just makes one into a fool; maybe folks having recent experience parenting insolent teens can do it, but you can't dock their car keys and drinking money via the web.

    We can import some ideas but not the tone from that blog and address them; not to discuss anything with ERV but to have considered and factual responses ready should any of that snark filter its way into news articles etc.
